The Nicene Creed

THE NICENE CREED

The Year of Faith gives those of us who have already entered the 'door of faith', the opportunity to rediscover for ourselves the inexhaustible riches opened up to us - riches that we can draw on over and over again if we are to be credible witnesses to our Risen Lord and lead others to crisis the threshold of that same door.

To be able to communicate our faith to others we must all surely seek to deepen our own understanding of the faith we profess.

I hope this series of teaching sermons based on the Nicene Creed will not only invigorate our own Christian believing, but also give us a renewed confidence and enthusiasm to communicate what we believe to others.

7th July 2013

We believe in one God
The Father, the Almighty



14th July 2013

Maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen



21st July 2013

We believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
The only Son of God,
Eternally begotten of the Father.
God from God,
Light from Light,
True God from true God,
Begotten not made
Of one being with the Father;
Through him all things were made


13th October 2013
For us men and for our salvation
He came down from heaven,
By the power of the Holy Spirit
He became incarnate of the Virgin Mary
And was made man.


20th October 2013

For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate
He suffered and was buried,
On the third day He rose again
In accordance with the Scriptures


17th November 2013

He ascended into heaven
And is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
To judge the living and the dead
And his kingdom shall have no end.


9th February 2014
We believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life
Who, proceeds from the Father and the Son
With the Father and the Son
He is worshipped and glorified,
He has spoken through the prophets.


16th February 2014
We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church


23rd February 2014

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins
We look for the resurrection of the dead
And the life of the world to come

Amen
